Remember that the order of snack availability may be different than what is expected depending on how ripe the fruit or vegetables are when they arrive. This is a very hard time of the year for our cafeteria staff to find large quantities of ripe fresh fruits and vegetables.
Tues - carrots w/ranch
Wed - pears
Thurs - Bananas
Fri - golden delicious apples

Pear trees develop white or pink flowers. Even though pear flowers contain both types of reproductive organs (stamens and pistil), they cannot perform self-pollination. Insects are the main pollinators of pear flowers.



It looks like it will be warm and dry in the morning and then wet starting in the middle of the day
